Crushing on Curry

Happy Friday, peeps!  I had a bit of a rough day yesterday so I hunkered down in my craft room last night for a bit of stamping therapy!  Neither is stellar but at least I got inky!  They both use Crushed Curry ink, too!  The first is for CAS(E) this Sketch:

I pulled out some stamps that hadn't seen ink for a long time!  A plaid background from Unity (Gurnsey Gingham) and a little thumbprint set from Clearly  Besotted (In Print) seemed like a fun match:

This little kitty is stamped in Crushed Curry and Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used a MFT die and some retired SU burlap ribbon:

He just makes me smile!   My second one is for the Happy Little Stampers challenge of Diecuts as well as the CAS Watercolour Card Challenge for August, which is sunflowers:


I diecut two flowers from some watercolor paper, using a MFT Stitched Flowers die, then watercolored them with Crushed Curry and Soft Suede inks, since I already had them on my desk!  I layered them together, then I added some Old Olive leaves and stem, and mounted them on a Whisper White card that had been embossed with a Lil'Inker Stitched Rectangle die:

The sentiment is from SU's Beautiful Bouquet!  This card was partly inspired by Bonnie's birthday card to me; this picture doesn't do it justice, it is even prettier IRL!

And here's another floral beauty from my friend Linda H:

And this beauty is from my Paper Players teammate Jaydee:

Thank you ladies, for my beautiful cards!  More coming in the next few days!

Cassidy has been saving her money to buy a skateboard, and I thought it might be a good idea to get her one at a yard sale to try out  first!  We hit a fabulous yardsale right around the corner from our house and managed to score a Penny skateboard, two helmets, a boogie board and a plastic toboggan, all for $1 each!!  Look at the look on her face:

So far this is the only way she's been able to ride on it, LOL!

Give her time!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Super cards LeAnne...the first one I thought was actually your Thumbprint...stitched flower one is beautiful. Not only is there a big smile on Cassidy’s face...but take a look at Grandpa..You have some good garage/yard sales near finding a treasure...a good deal on all of her Skateboard equipment...Be safe Cassidy.

LeAnne you got right on that Sketch, and it's darling - love that little thumbprint kitty - and the curry!
Your sunflower is so CASilicious, too!
Your birthday card is on its way … so sorry I missed it - these butterflies have kept me on the front porch for weeks now!

Sweet cards using crushed curry LeAnne! That thumbprint kitten is ADORABLE!! Especially love it with the gingham background and the band of burlap. Your sunflower card is so pretty with lots of dimension. Love the stitched petals done in brown. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

Lovely cards for your birthday! Happy Belated!! The picture of Cassidy holding the skateboard is priceless. :)

Two beauties, LeAnne! Love the gingham and kitty thumbprint! And that 3D sunflower is AWESOME! Beautiful colors and dimension! Looks like Cassidy is a wise shopper! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! (Glad you liked the card!)
